In parts of the League a rod of this nature is called an Rod of Expeditious Retreat or more rarely a Lefthand Bastard. Both names refer to its use by magicians who find themselves in trouble, providing an opening through which to flee. The Lefthand Bastard is a reference to a popular combination used by some ambidextrous mountebanks in which the rod is wielded in one hand while a long blade is used in the other. A magician equipped with both can drive one opponent away while delivering a nasty slash with the other hand.
